Eugene Organizers and Partners
I’ve been involved with bioregional counter-cultural and permacultural activity since 1974. In 1976 I was a lead organizer of a bioregional gathering intended to establish a regional federation of cooperatives. I’m the fc0-ounder and program director of the Dharmalaya Center in Eugene, the Director of the PROUT Institute (proutinstitute.org), and the primary instructor for Transformation Education (https://transformation-education.teachable.com/). A primary hat I wear is that of an ordained meditation teacher in the yogic tradition. I’ve authored four books on new paradigm political theory, including “Transformation to a New Era.” I lectured extensively internationally as well as giving many webinars. In 1993 I was invited by the Governor of the Russian Far East state of Khabarovsk to draft a development plan based on the post-capitalist social philosophy, PROUT. I was the lead organizer for three regional permaculture gatherings in the early 2000s. Dharmalaya, where I live is a model of sustinable living. Dharmalaya has held many trainings, including a summer program called “Community Transformations” that gave participants an integrated vision of regenerative communities. Dharmalaya is in the heart of the “River Road permaculture zone” in Eugene and has involved in many permaculture and regenerative community initiatives and gatherings.
I currently work with the PROUT Institute and with my neighborhood association hoping to instill a =n understanding of holistic systems change in community activities.
Chronologically in my life I have played overlapping roles as student, musician, spiritual aspirant, woodworker, sales and marketing representative, home improvement entrepreneur, husband, primary caregiver single father, caregiver for my own father, non-profit co-founder, and community organizer.
Dedicated Permaculture trainer, Social Permaculture practitioner and community organizer. Group facilitator & integration coach.
The alarming rise in chronic unexplained inflammation and autoimmune disease I have seen in 30+ years of clinical practice has made clear – we must restore the health of our soils if we are to regenerate human and community well-being. Bioregional, community-led, soil-first and regenerative food systems is a critical acupuncture point of transformation. It is key to a thriving commons and our collective future.
